Corsair Equipes an aircraft with Adhetec Antimicrobial films for tray tables.
With hygiene being more important than ever Adhetec have released a new range of adhesive films embedding a natural, clean and nontoxic antibactieral and antiviral technology which will enable travel in a safe environment onboard.
Adhetec stated “Our technology is safe for the skin and does not release any toxic molecules.” The technology used in antimicrobial products are natural and neutral, harmless for passengers even for very young children.
Cosair have operated a test flight from Paris to Abidjan with all the Premium and Economy tray tables equipped with Adhetec protective film. The films integrate the antimicrobial technology which allows a stable and permanent microbial decontamination, destroying viruses and bacteria by direct contact.
Enea Fracassi, Technical and Fleet Director, said “We are very proud to be the first Airline in Europe to implement this innovative film technology, which complements the range of on-board hygiene measures already in place for the comfort of our customers. Indeed, the combined protective action of the film and its antimicrobial technology meet the expectations of our customers and reassure them. Making our customers travel in optimal sanitary conditions is one of our company’s priorities.”
How does it work?
Adhetec antimicrobial solutions embed a breakthrough technology by its partner Pylote: micron-sized mineral additives mixed in the surface coating. The antiviral and antibacterial action of the microspheres operate by contact with the surface of parts where they have been incorporated into. It is the result of a reaction between moisture, air and the surface containing the antimicrobial treatment, killing germs.
Adhetec’s aerospace cabin antimicrobial products are:
- Easy to apply and remove
- They protect cabin parts and the films increase their durability
- Efficient at permanently destroying bacteria and viruses including coronavirus (destroys up to 99.999% of bacteria and viruses)
- Compliant with flammability requirements
